Domain Issues

Hey guys!
I accidentally let my site expire and I’m having issues connecting the right site,

So please bare with me while I get this sorted out!!



Hey guys, hope everyone is good! I am doing some stuff here on Alilacquer so that I won’t be on WordPress anymore and will become self hosted. There will most likely be downtime, I’m hoping not though, but usually should be 24 hours! DO check back tomorrow afternoon for a new post. I will have updates on twitter if you’d like to keep up with me that way!

Daphine Polish Review-Poinsettia & Skating


*Press Sample*

Hey guys, today I also have an indie polish review/swatch for you today. I was sent these two shades from the Daphine Polish Christmas collection. You can view that here on her Etsy shop.

I have Poinsettia and Skating to share today.

Poinsettia was definitely one I would not have chosen for myself as I’m not a fan of reds, but swatching it, I had a very different opinion on it! I came to like it very much!

Skating is very much so what I would have chosen for myself, I love glitters and the dimension of this one is really pretty. It’s a perfect polish to layer over any color you can imagine!

The first polish to show is Poinsettia, a reddish brick-orange creme with a slight holographic tint to it. It is much more pretty on the nail than in the bottle! I can did two coats for this.


The next one I swatched is Skating, a gorgeous blue glitter polish. It has some diamond shaped holo glitter, multi-sized and colored blue glitter with a gold iridescent base. There’s so many possibilities to layer this over things! For this swatch I used the sponge method, which you can view that here.

12 Days of Christmas Nail art challenge- Day 20 & Day 23

Good Morning ladies & maybe gents! I felt like doing my nails so I do some nail art on my left hand, my nails are finally starting to seem like they want to grow! (They have kept breaking anytime they got to cm of growth.) Any way I decided to do Christmas tree freestyle for today’s challenge and I did the last challenge which was presents.

For today’s challenge was christmas tree freestyle, so I pulled out my glitter! First I made little tree’s using WNW Fast Dry polish in Sagreena The Teenage witch (you can see it swatched here.) I also used glitter from in Christmas Tree Mix! While Sagreena was still wet I just sprinkled the glitter onto the wet polish, conveniently a star feel perfectly into place at the top of the tree so I decided to put the stars in the glitter mix at the tops of the trees!

Missing from the last 3 days is the Presents mani, which I made out of 3 shades of polish, red, green and silver. The silver and red is ELF’s Red-y Or Not and Liquid Metal, the green is also Sagreena The Teenage Witch.  This mani was very easy, I just used a striper nail art polish to do almost all of this, I also used a dotting tool to do the dots!

I know I’ve been bad at keeping up! sorry, but hope you guys liked these!!

Sinful colors nail polish in (what am I??)

I noticed that the name didn’t seem to fit, and saw that another shade seems to be silver rainbows, but what is this one?? I looked at the two bottles and they both have the same name….If you know what this is please let me know.

Today’s swatch is Sinful colors’s (XX), a very sparkly green, blue and red bar glitter polish. This took about 2 coats to do but also because I did the sponge on method. (Pic of that will be below) I have been looking for these shades forever now and I finally found them at my Walgreens on an end cap!! Woot!! I have a few more shades left to show you this year!

Do you guys like bar glitter?? Think it’s been over?


Sponge on method: put on 2 layers onto the sponge, and then wait a couple seconds for some of the excess clear polish in glitter polish to soak into the sponge, and then press that onto your nail. It gives you more glitter overall and faster! (I would even say it dries faster too.)

Also consider the silver holo glitter a preview 😛

Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak- Dry Shampoo Review

NYM-dry-shampoo Hey guys!

If you keep up with Influenster (which is an amazing site btw) you would know that they got this product in their Violet VoxBox! I heard so many good things so I decided to go for it and purchase it myself. I have a Dry conditioner but ran out of Dry shampoo forever ago, so that also helped the decision!

If you’ve never purchased one I really recommend doing so. It really is a hair and time saver when it comes to not washing your hair everyday! For instance, had hairspray on yesterday and hair felt less than presentable today, well spray this stuff on your roots and all over and you’ve got brand “new” hair. (Boyfriend approved!)

A lot of hair products have a heavy fragrance to them and while sometimes it’s nice, sometimes it is not, so I enjoy that this one lacks a heavy scent. It smells fresh, light and airy.

Some dry shampoos can also have the “white cast” which is a powdery white streak that can show up in your hair. (NOT CUTE!) This product does not give you that and it makes your hair just as soft as you would have if you had washed it! Overall I love this product and would repurchase.

If you’d tried this let me know what your thoughts are!

(I paid $5.99 @ my Harris Teeter)

Fresh Paint nail polish in Sugar Crush

Hey guys! I purchased some stuff a couple days ago at my local beauty supply and Five Below and usually on my blog I will try to post things in the order that I buy them but I just really couldn’t wait! I swatched this yesterday so sorry if it looks rough, but it is absolutely GORGEOUS. I swatched it over my basic black nail polish. (Wet N Wild’s Wild Shine polish in Black Creme) I knew this shade would be really pretty but man it exceeded my expectations ! Not only is this polish gorgeous, it is also VERY affordable! I purchased it at my Five Below store, which if I’m correct is an East Coast chain store. They have polishes there for $2 each OR 3/$5. I purchased more Funky Fingers polishes so expect those pictures next week! I could’t stop taking pictures of this, so kind of pic heavy!
